Jo Boyce writes: This year, the solemnity of Corpus Christi fell on the same date as the 8th anniversary of the death of our co-founder, Mike Stanley. It was especially poignant to be at Mass on that great feast, singing Bread of Life Eternal Truth, the first song Mike and I ever co-wrote together all those years ago.

It is not surprising that our first and best known song is a song of Eucharistic communion.

As the weeks to come in Ordinary Time unfold, we will have more opportunities to reflect on how God, in his providence, nurtures and sustains us …

– He is the Shepherd who cares for and protects his capricious flock.
– He is the One who feeds the hungry multitudes and gives his people manna in the desert.
– He is the Lord who gives himself to us as the Bread of Life.

The song “Taste and See”, another favorite in our Eucharistic repertoire, is a perfect hymn for many of these coming Sundays in ordinary time.

It’s a simple ostinato chorus type song, with only four chords. But it works best if you can get the “gospel sense” right – which is one of the tips I share in this last guitar tutorial.
